A review of condition monitoring techniques of the wind turbines gearbox and rotor
MetadataShow full item record
Gearbox and the blades are classified as the most critical and expensive components of the wind turbine. Moreover, these parts are prone to high risk failure when compared to the rest of the wind turbine components. Due to the global significant increase in wind turbines, a reliable and cost effective condition monitoring technique is essential to maintain the availability and to improve the reliability of wind turbines. This paper aims to present a comprehensive review of the latest condition monitoring techniques for turbine gearbox and blades which are considered as the crux of any wind energy conversion system.

Using multiple tuned mass dampers to control offshore wind turbine vibrations under multiple hazardsZuo, H.; Bi, K.; Hao, Hong (2017)Offshore wind turbines can be built larger and lighter than they used to be due to the application of new materials. These large and flexible structures are vulnerable to external vibration sources such as wind, sea wave ...
